Nice jacket...it appears longer than 25.5
You know, it does. I will measure at home and report. On teaser photos (before Hercules website went live) the demo jacket was real long. Tony then wrote that it was shortened to 25.5. If it is longer it's okay with me as I intend to use it in colder weather. My understanding is that Hercules will do custom lengths.
Decent jacket for the price that for sure. Way too long though. At least a good 2”.

Is the D pocket live? No mention of it on the website. Hopefully they resolved the issue with the "loose" AB.
The pattern reminds me US Wings jacket
Looks to be from Will’s photos. I’m jumping in on one. I’ve already sent a rapid fire set of emails to Tony about ordering one. I’m hoping to get something cooking soon. I particularly like the design on it.
Back length from bottom of collar to hem - 25".
Front length along zipper - 23". Just as I specced to Tony.
All my jackets are 25" long, including 3 CRs, and only this one looks longish.
I don't mind as this one is definitely a winter coat (super warm with thick wool liner and thick hide) and covering half my butt is not a bad thing when a cold wind blows.
Very impressive jacket and a perfect fit, I also like the Admiral Byrd jacket they are selling, I recall Aero making one some time ago for a lounger who was making a documentary.
Fellow Lounger @jacketjunkie ordered the Admiral Byrd from Herc, hopefully the review will be up very soon!
Here it is. Thread of its own will follow when I have more time, maybe weekend. Leather is of nice weight and texture. Nice trim sleeves, fit just what I had hoped for. Trim fit with just a t-shirt, just enough room to also put on a sweater under it. Love the handwarmers + patch pockets pocket set-up. I'll need this on all my future jackets.
Very happy with what I got, great value for the money and more than that. Design, weight and fit are all just right on this one. Will certainly wear it more than many of my more expensive jackets.
Never seen this style in black as all the vintage ones are brown...I like it! Congratulations.
Looks great, @jacketjunkie!
I just sent Tony 15 messages. I need that d pocket. Officially transitioning from good customer to psycho ex girlfriend.
That Admiral Byrd is also excellent and again fits great, I'll look forward to your review!
I can't wait till you get it, because I want one too.
I just wanted to add that there is a good amount of wax pull-up on the russet hide. I love it; it adds "instant" patina as the color ebbs and flows in the stress areas.
Pics of that, please.
Both of you guys look great in your jackets! Would you be kind enough to tell me each of you what size you are hight? weight? suit size? so I’ll know what to order thank you so much.
Sleeves after 1 day of flexing. The pulled-up areas are yellowish; the rest is russet. This hide is very "alive" and responsive to stimuli.
I am 5'9" and 154, ordered size 40 with 24" sleeves and 25" back length. Wanted to size up a bit to be able to put a sweater underneath. 38 would have been a t-shirt only situation. Suit size is 38 for me.
